Anywhere but it is best to create a new folder in Microsoft Games/Age of Empire II, name it Mod Packs and unzip

I messed up the anchors a little bit but it's still good. Took me ages to do the shadow though.

'New outpost' is a modpack which replaces the outpost with a new sort of outpost which has 2 standard outposts separated by a bridge.

Rating: 2

This mod is unusable. It doesn't matter what the anchors are, a graphic this large can not fit into the 1-tile foundation of an outpost. Thus units can walk over both the outposts and you can have trees over it. When it burns, the fire appears in the middle where there is nothing.

The saving grace is the appearance, it is decent ( which is why it is a 2 ) because they are ES graphics with a thin rectangle in between that could pass for a 'bridge'. Although the shadow is well done it is too long ( compare with the stone wall, it is the same height and the shadow is half as long ) and unrealistic w.r.t the bridge .

I don't see any possible use for this because you would need to put it in an inaccessible area so that units could not walk over it and most such scenarios would better be served by 2 outposts instead. The idea though original is weird - since when is did 2 outposts get connected by a bridge? There's no such thing and because it serves no use and is impractical.

Whats eye candy?
acade365 i liked it! the idea is pretty good. you can still improve it though; the anchors are messed up and the bridge could use some more detail.
but its a great start!

„Whats eye candy?“ Usually candy is for your stomach. ;-) People refer for beautiful things to see as ‘eye candy’, like sweet things to see. I prefer to refer to them as Gaia objects.

Thanks for that acade365 means a lot to me lol

This is my first mod pack but I'm designing a dark age makeover. It's pretty good so far I'll post it soon

Right, but once we unzip the file, what folder do we put it in to make it take effect in the game? I didnt see ANY .akx files anywhere in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires II and that is where everything goes.
acade365 hunnic paladin:
an .akx file is a modpack file.
this means you need Mod Pack Studio 2.0, an application you can find right here in the Blacksmith.
Once you've installed MPS, you extract the akx file from the zip to anywhere on your computer and then double-click it.
MPS will install it, and run aok (or aoc). When you close aok, the MPS will uninstall the modpack.
If you want to leave the modpack permanently installed:
when aok is running, press ctrl+alt+del and close mps. This will permanently install the mod.
The only way to uninstall it then is to reinstall aok and aoc.
